Progress...

The foundation hole was inspected by the town Tuesday morning (passed) and today the footings were poured. The foundation's footings consist of a two foot wide by one foot high concrete "base" ontop of which rests the walls of the foundation. In the detail below (taken from our construction plans) you can see the footing resting underneath the vertical wall of the foundation.



After the footings are inspected (tomorrow?) then the contractor will begin building the wooden forms for the foundation walls. This will take a few days at least. If the weather holds up I imagine they will be pouring sometime next week. So far, we have really been blessed - can you believe the temps?
